Today's farce continued into the evening, as several versions of these ads aired during basketball games for March Madness and the NBA tonight, ostensibly Republicans patting themselves on the back - for something that never happened!

Basketball fans tonight in several Republican-adjacent TV markets are enjoying a series of ads, prematurely bought by the American Action Network PAC, inviting viewers to call their representatives to thank them for repealing Obamacare today—something that did not happen.

Above you see an ad praising Virginia’s Barbara Comstock; it ran during the Wizards-Nets game.

UPDATE: To add further insult to injury, Comstock was going to change her vote to "no", according to WaPo.
